What is NSU
Nightstalker's Universe Mod has been in the works for 7 years, the mod itself has gone though many incarnations including being rewritten several times. The concept of NSU is to give SciFi junkies what they are looking for. There are several sections of the mod dedicated to different SciFi Shows such as, BSG, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Firefly, and Star Wars. There are several sections of the mod that come from different ideas I have come up with and each system is uniquely different with custom suns, starspheres, and a few planets. The Mod has a lot to offer for a wide range of players. At the start you are given 5 choices though the use of one way jump holes (one in ST, SW, B5, Nightstalker Space, Terran Alliance Space). There are also 4 unique Factions in the mod, including Rogue Asteroids, Comets, Derelicts (Moving wrecks), and monsters (They hurt too).

There is an update coming but I do not have a date as of yet for release.

It should be an exe. When you open it, a prompt should come up and ask you where you want the mod extracted to.

If you have a space in that it does not work.

Also, do not put it in the "" It should look like "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\EXE\Freelancer.exe" -s205.185.113.40:2302 in a 32bit OS

and

"c:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\EXE\Freelancer.exe" -s205.185.113.40:2302 in a x64 OS (Unless you have it in a different partition)

As of today are EU server is no more. The server OP cannot keep up with the expenses. So now we are down to the USA-1 server only until I decide if we need a new EU host or not.

A lot of potential here, on the NSU mod. I would have given it a 10 if there was a open single player option. But NS wants it only as Multi-Player, shame really. But with that aside, this mod has everything for the Sci Fi Geek in all of us..lol Graphics on most of the ships are sharp and detailed, only a few along with some stations that need a revamp. Almost no trade lanes, but your cruise engine's are increased to 900 to cope with the large distance's, a 1000 cruise would be better as that would…
